"Got Gout?" is the slogan on the popular T-shirt that all the Red Sox pitching staff are wearing. Red Sox teammate David Wells has been a sufferer of gout throughout his carreer. The main symptoms of gout are severe pain and inflammation in the joints. Sometimes even the pressure of a bed sheet can cause a person excruciating pain. If gout is left untreated it can lead to more serious problems such as kidney disease and high blood pressure.
Gout is caused by the body producing more uric acid than the kidneys can process and eliminate, causing it to build up in the joint. The body naturally produces uric acid; it's also found in certain meats and fish. Gout sufferers may have inundated their body with foods high in uric acid or foods that cause high uric acid production, or their kidneys may be struggling to eliminate toxins from the body, uric acid being among them.
David Wells of the Boston Red Sox is not alone in suffering from this affliction. According to the Mayo Clinic, more than 2 million Americans suffer from gout symptoms. The Mayo Clinic also states that Gout is one of the oldest known diseases. It has been recognized for more than 2000 years.
There are a few basic options for treating gout, ranging from high-cost corticosteroid prescription medications to changing your lifestyle habits and low cost phyto-pharmaceuticals (plant-based medicines) that have been used for decades and are prescribed on a daily basis in Europe and Canada.
To cope with the pain, most sufferers use ibuprofin or a prescription pain reliever. For some this can help manage the pain, but doesn't end it completely because it doesn't address the cause of gout, but merely a symptom. Also, using medications like this on a daily basis can lead to negative side effects including stomach pain, bleeding and ulcers, liver damage and rebound headaches (headaches caused by drug overuse). Physicians have found that corticosteroid perscriptions such as cortisone and prednisone can help lessen the inflammation around the joints. This can help relieve gout symptoms of inflammation for a while, but comes with a long list of side effects including bone thinning, high blood pressure, mood swings, weight gain, cataracts and high blood sugar. And like pain relievers, it is only a temporary solution since it only addresses a symptom of gout, not the cause.
Some people can manage some of the gout symptoms by carefully watching what foods they eat. For those who choose this option regular excercise is essential in maintaning the disease. But according to published research, gout doesn't have to be a problem you resign yourself to live with by "maintaining" it. As trends in health begin to shift towards more natural alternatives, gout sufferers are beginning to realize they can get real relief from the piercing, jarring pain caused by gout, without prescriptions or their side effects.
Based on numerous studies, Selmedica Healthcare has designed a product with ingredients that have been proven to help breakdown and dissolve any current uric acid crystal build up and prevent any future accumulation. Uricryl™ was designed based on several studies, research, and tests performed by a variety scientists and researchers, as well as current trends in health and medication in Europe and Canada. Several of the ingredients in Uricryl™ are prescribed daily to treat gout and its symptoms in countries like Germany, England, France and Canada.
The ingredients in Uricryl™ can help relieve the pain and prevent the crystals caused by gout from forming. Better yet, if taken on a continuous basis, the ingredients in Uricryl™ can help your body eliminate the excess uric acid produced by your own body, improve circulation, reduce inflammation and pain caused by the uric acid crystals in the joints, and reduce the overall uric acid in your body. Also, Uricryl™ does not contain any aspirin, which can slow down the excretion of uric acid.
A one month supply of Uricryl™ is $67, nowhere near the cost of currently prescribed drugs and seems to be much more effective as it directly addresses the cause of gout, not just the symptoms. Selmedica, like several other producers of phyto-pharmaceuticals, offers a 100% money-back guarantee for up to a full year after the purchase date of Uricryl™, with no questions asked as to why the product is being returned. Try asking your pharmacy for a guarantee like that - you'd be laughed at. For more information please visit http://www.goutin.com .
